  • Koenig, Daniel Edgar (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Geography, c2012Arts and ScienceDepartment of Geography, 2012)
    In dryland environments, the availability of soil moisture is the primary control on plant species’ distributions. In the sandhill regions of the northern Great Plains, vegetation establishment has transformed highly mobile, ...
  • Burger, Danielle K. (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of NeuroscienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2014)
    Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are environmental toxicants that bioaccumulate in the body. PCB 126 is the most toxic PCB congener due to its ability to mimic the effects of dioxins. Here, I examined the effects of early ...
